AMC had a strange warning before the Walking Dead TV series

I just turned the channel before it went to the episode.
From the second or two I looked at it said.

DUE to the shooting and Tragedy in CT this episode could disturb some people.

Or something to that effect , did anyone else see this?

It seemed strange for a TV show about zombies to put that in their warning .

1. Well there are a few kid zombies that are dispatched.


The imagery could really upset some people.

2. There is a lot of shooting

on the show. Even if they are shooting zombies. It would be the guns and firing that would be upsetting. It wouldn't matter what they were shooting, I would guess.

On another note, is this a rerun you're watching? I thought the mid-season break/hiatus was to go through to the beginning of March.

4. A lot of makers of violent shows plastered these stupid warnings on them

Like Dexter. OK I am watching a show about a serial killer... I think a disclaimer isn't going to help minimizing one's "disturb."

5. No one listened

when a similar warning was sent out via radio in about 1939.
